Recently I visited a Jewish Museum in Sydney what interested me the most is I saw a chart basically stating timeline of religion being recorded in the history. After came back from the visit, I tried to Google it to find out which religion comes first. Then I figured out some religions are possibly derived from another. But wait, is that important all?
After a while, I figured out it is not important at all. In fact, it is totally irrelevant. Who comes first is not important at all. The reason is basically we're in the looping system - everything is looping. When everything is in looping, whoever comes first is irrelevant. You may appear to come first but in fact you come later. In fact, you can be both!
The next question to ask is which one is the truth? Which religion is closer to the truth? This actually has been answered by my previous post - which religion is right?
Let's assuming there is a ultimate truth, who is closer to the truth is not religion dependent, it is in fact very personal dependent. It depends on the person, not religion. If there is a ranking system to rank how close a person to the ultimate truth, the first place could be a Muslim, the second place could be a Christian and third place could a Buddhist and vice-versa. It doesn't really matter actually.
However, if you're thinking closer to the ultimate truth is religion dependent, then you're probably stuck - maybe most people are? Furthermore, the ultimate truth is NOT out there. :)
Merry Christmas and happy new year!
